The coronavirus disease 2019 has and continues to overwhelm the medical establishment in New York City. It has moved faster and had rates of mortality higher than what were initially forecast.

We share our experience and what we have learned as it pertains to this pandemic and hope that it aides, guides, and influences other departments of physical medicine and rehabilitation regarding their potential roles and areas of growth during this time.
